Music and Wine should be paired. We call this VINOMUSIC.
#VINOMUSIC: Corinne Bailey Rae & Roth Alexander Valley Sauvignon Blanc
Festival season is officially upon us; the time of year when music fans from all over the world converge days at a time to see some of their favorite acts live. With SXSW in motion right now in Austin, Texas, and Coachella up next in April in Indio, California, it is time to slowly bust out the denim cutoffs, Chucks, tanks, and vintage concert tees from your closet. With sunnier days in abundance on the horizon, it is natural to gravitate to those tunes that are bright and bouncy, and beverages that are light and crisp. Let us paint the picture.
The one-month countdown to Coachella is here and you and your group of music-lover friends were able to snag passes for the three-day jaunt that takes place in the Coachella Valley of the Colorado Desert region of Southern California. To prepare for the experience, your squad created a collaborative playlist of all your favorite artists that will be playing at the fest, along with a bunch of general feel-good tunes to get you pumped for your Cali trip!
You make it to Indio, and when you arrive at the resort, you decide to have a little barbecue and invite your 'neighbors' who are also in town for the show. You throw on your squad playlist, and start to crack open the vino. The list begins with the chill sounds of Corinne Bailey Rae, specifically her new single after a six year hiatus, "Been To The Moon". The bright synths of the track pair greatly with the bottle of Roth Estate 2014 Alexander Valley Sauvignon Blanc that you are pouring. With notes of tropical fruits, citrus zest, and floral, it pairs perfectly with your setting and music. A toast to sunnier days ahead!
Watch the music video for "Been To The Moon" below and learn more about Corinne Bailey Rae and her upcoming album, The Heart Speaks In Whispers, via her official website.
